Thursday Three Hundred: Lakewood For Less Than $350K? Yes, Please!

Published May 17, 2012 by Joanna England

From the street, 6319 Velasco Avenue looks like another great Lakewood home.

Lakewood is hot. But, dearest Dirt-o-phile, you already knew that. Homes are under contract before they hit MLS in some cases, and in others, they’re sold within weeks of listing.


But sometimes you can find a deal where no one else is looking. That’s the case with 6319 Velasco from our fine friends at Rogers Healy and Associates. Maybe, on the other hand, it’s a deal because the bathrooms are problem areas. I wouldn’t be able to tell, though, because the listing for this home doesn’t have a photo of either of the two baths in this quaint, 2,056-square-foot home with three bedrooms. It’s kind of a pet peeve of mine.

The listing does boast “original details,” such as a telephone nook and stained glass. Methinks the cupboards inside the “country kitchen” might need a little sprucing up, though. Unless you’re into wood paneling. The apron sink is a keeper, though!

Otherwise, it’s exactly what you’d expect from a Lakewood traditional: archways, trees, and tons of charm. And the price just went down, too, to the tune of $5,100. Sounds like a steal to me!
